Storyline

In the hills of Kentucky, the Plumps and the Runts are neighbors and bootleggers. Peter Plump is in love with one of the Runts, and her brother is in love with one of the Plumps. The courting and the spooning go well until Peter and his future brother-in-law hook the same fish and start a fight over whose it is. The fracas escalates, and soon the two families are shooting at each other. If love can't bring the two sides back together, what can? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The 24 Year Old Oliver Hardy
29 November 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the year when Charles Chaplin signed up with Mutual Films to write, direct, produce and act in his own two reelers, Oliver Hardy earned his living by acting in one reelers such as 'The Battle Royal'. He would have to wait until 1927 when he teamed up with Stan Laurel in the silent classic short film, 'You're Darn Tootin', before he would receive the same level of fame as Chaplin.
